Right click on two svchost.exe entries:
- svchost.exe   900   16.23
- svchost.exe   1288   10.57
(in bold are PID numbers)
Click Properties, then Services tab.

Can you post screenshots for both?

        That's fine. 900 process was the main CPU taker. Nothing horrible, but still at 14%.
        What do you have connected to your computer, beside monitor, keyboard, and mouse?

          See, if same thing happens, if you.....

          Go Start>Run (Start Search in Vista), type in:
          msconfig
          Click OK (hit Enter in Vista).

          Click on Startup tab.
          Click Disable all

          Click Services tab.
          Put checkmark in Hide all Microsoft services
          Click Disable all.

          Click OK.
          Restart computer in Normal Mode.

          NOTE. If you use different firewall, than Windows firewall, turn Windows firewall on, just for this test, since your regular firewall won't be running.
          If you use Windows firewall, you're fine.
